Now empty-nesters, it was time to downsize. We sold the family house and moved to a a much smaller living space, a condo unit. I no longer have any grass to cut, no snow to shovel away. Cleaning is a breeze. The underground garage means a vehicle protected against the elements (not to mention a warm car to get into and drive away during the winter season). What sealed the deal?
Every time we sit down for dinner to feast on my wife’s culinary creations, dining table and chairs positioned right next to the floor to ceiling glass, it is always as if we are nestled in one of those sky-view restaurants. Except of course it is home. Priceless.
The welcome surprise
And what a welcome and pleasant surprise! We didn’t expect this: the unique floor plan and orientation of our unit allows us a view of both sunrise and sunset during the summer season. The sunsets are particularly impressive and awash with colour.
